Most definitely one of the best comedy-yet-serious books I've ever read. I was looking for a ghost story, and in a way this is, but it's a story about how the even the cruddiest man in the world can be redeemed, and how a woman who has seemingly lost it all can start living again. And maybe they can save each other.
The dialogue between all the celestial characters in heaven, hell, and a certain bar is hysterical. Hell's Kitchen takes on new meaning. You would be surprised who from our pop-culture is hell-bound. Comb overs are a definite no-no (hear that Donald?). Also, God is a woman. Seriously. Haven't encountered that before and I thought it was cool. Satan goes by the name of Lou. And Albert Einstein wasn't all about...stuff no one else can understand.
As a New Yorker who was at the Trade Center on 9/11/01, I very much felt what Orloff was writing about what happened on that day. I think she must be a New Yorker as well to be able to describe the hole that was ripped into our hearts as a city.
If I have a criticism is that there were a few times I got confused about who was talking. Also, there were some references to real-life political figures that momentarily took me out of the story. But none of this deterred my interest, or my desire to keep turning the pages. Definitely worth your time!
Julian Shaw loves being a "pervert" and enjoys making a living from a life of depravity and decadence. However, he has made numerous enemies especially from the moral right and from family members of his "guests"; one of these zealots shoots him. Julian falls into a coma, but in his comatose state, voices demand he assist Katie find a better life; the stakes are his soul. He figures how hard this can be until he tries and falls in love with her; now if it means his eternal soul so be it because kissable Katie is his for the rest of his albeit seemingly short life.
This superb romantic fantasy is filled with whimsical love as matchmaking seems to come from beyond. Katie and Julian are opposites and in fact she makes it clear to her taxi driver what she thinks of the city's top rated pervert. Fans who relish something refreshingly different will enjoy the aptly titled FREUDIAN SLIP as the antihero finds his soul and heart when he decides to become the champion of love instead of depravity.
